So what's happening is the Lumetri color on this clip appears to be flashing on and off. I see it in my timeline and in the export. There are no other effects applied to my clips. It's happening to many clips, but not all. And not to every instance of a source clips (IE: sometimes I cut back to this single interview clip at different times and the flickering is not present). This is week 2 with this issue. What I have tried so far:

 

I have updated premiere

updated video drivers twice

exported from 2 different similar PC machines

purged my cache and render files

exported in premiere and in media encoder

copied everything into a new sequence in a new project

Fianly, the most success I've had so far is disabling GPU acceleration when exporting in Media Encoder. It trippled my render time but I only got three flashes in the whole 3min video. But that's still an unacceptable problem. Thoughts?

You'll see the glitch is periodic. This was done in Media Encoder with software rendering only (no GPU accelleration). Every time I try a new fix the location of the glitch in the timeline changes. The only thing that seems constant is that it looks like only my MXF clips are effected. While my MP4s are behaving. And no its not feasble to transcode all my MXFs just to get this project to work.

Hi Benjamin,

Sorry about that. My only suggestion is to transcode the .mxf files until the issue has been worked out. I see others on these forums having problems with certain codecs and .mxf, so I suspect a bug is afoot. I would roll back to an earlier version or target those files for transcoding. I'll look into this issue soon after I return to my desk. 

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Unfortunatly the problem persists. I have been able to confirm that the culprit is any footage in .mxf. It happens in all my projects. Transcoding all my MXF files to ProRes is not a viable solution as I have 6 years and growing worth of archival footage shot in MXF that I regularly use in different projects. Exporting the project sequence to ProRes and then transcoding that to an mp4 partially works, although sometimes that process Premiere will just completely ignore lumetri on random clips. This is also not an acceptable solution because beyond not working 100% it doesnt fix the fact that these clips are flashing in my timeline while editing them which makes editing a nightmare.
